and something happens to the sound when it passes through this Marantz that it gets annoyingly bad in sound quality

Summary: Every aspect of functionality works flawless on this receiver, the slim format is very convenient, at this price you couldn't ask for more. I don't know if other receivers do it, but one thing I miss is the ability to choose different video and audio sources (i.e leave a football match on the...
Summary: A good quality receiver for the right price. You will want to buy a voltage regulator. This receiver is extremely sensitive to any noise in the voltage coming into the unit, and will shut down.
Setup was awesome with the mic provided as my old receiver was ...

Summary: Writing this mostly to warn people you really need banana plugs. Technically you can do without but the compact design makes it really difficult. Bought this for the smaller box because my wife bought a new entertainment center that didn't have enclosures for my old one.
Summary: Incredible value for the money! Just follow the setup procedure to the letter and the results will be outstanding. The automatic speaker calibration is right on the money and it made my Energy Classic 5.1 system sound great. The unit is no light weight, literally.
Summary: This receiver works as expected. We are very happy. We are using in 2 channel set-up. Hub integrating Roku, Oppo, Slimdevices, and game systems (no cable TV). Big plus... It doesn't need to be connected to the Internet to work (or serve up ads).
Great product if you want good style and can live with tech that is a couple years old

Summary: So far so good. I decided to replace a good Sony receiver that was about 9 years old and had no HDMI connections. Saw the good reviews on CNET for this Marantz and decided to buy when the price dropped. It was simple to set up, and sounds really good.
Nice unit - just missing a hard copy user's guide.

Summary: This is a very nice AVR. I replaced a dead 16 year old Harman Kardon AVR. The setup is reasonably easy. The odyssey speaker setup is especially nice. It found a problem with one of my speaker connections being 'out of phase'. Basically, a crossed red/black connection. My HK never recognized this.
Summary: Owned and loved my Marantz 2220 receiver for about 40 years now. Purchased other receivers during that time span including 2 Pioneers, Sansui and a Kenwood. The 2220 was always re-purposed for other duties but ended up coming back into the man cave about 4 years ago and is still used a lot.
Summary: I have had several months to enjoy this product and I do not have anything negative to say. The slim design fits in my Chinese Rosewood TV cabinet and functions along with my Samsung SmartTV UN65H6350 perfectly.
